F.O.L.K. would like to offer their congratulations to local author – and Lakenheath Library special guest – Alison Bruce for reaching the short list for the Crime Writers’ Association Dagger in the Library Award 2013. This is the award we organised our World Book Day event with an eye towards promoting, so we are absolutely thrilled that Alison has received the recognition she deserves. She joins five other crime authors in contention for the top honour, which will be announced at a gala awards dinner in London next month. Best of luck, Alison!
For more information and the full short list of contenders, please visit the official CWA page.
In unrelated news, can we take this opportunity to apologise for the lack of online updates of late; the “Friends” group are still going strong* – our last meeting took place on Tuesday 4th June and we have featured in almost every recent issue of village newsletter Lakenheath Times – and we intend to bring this blog back up to speed as soon as possible with up-to-date minutes and news of not one but two forthcoming fundraising events in the coming months. Stay tuned.
